Simon is a Travel Consultant for Experience Travel Group. His travelling days began in 2008, when he headed off for a year-long trip around the world. He explored South America, toured around New Zealand and worked in Australia. The trip included a final, brief leg in Southeast Asia, but that wasn’t enough and he always knew he would return to this region for more exploring. Over the past 10 years, Simon has returned to Southeast Asia on several occasions for short holidays and two sabbatical breaks totalling over nine months. He’s visited Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Borneo and Indonesia, made exciting trips to Sri Lanka and trekked the Himalayas in Nepal.
My love affair with Southeast Asia began around 10 years’ ago and doesn’t seem to be fading. I have revisited the region several times since that backpacking trip in 2009, and still have so much more planned for the future.
